Shin Etus and IC Diamond compete. However once IC Diamond sets in after a couple days it outperforms shin etsu. However Indigo Extreme is by far the pinnacle of thermal engineering to cool your rig. It's $20 for 1 application. Well I think there are 2. However it completely blows ic diamond away by about 10C under load. IC Diamond 24 has always been the best, outperforming Shin Etsu by like 2-3C after it's been worn in. So I need actually scientific evidence of some reviewer comparing the compounds to actually see how well this so called liquid ultra performs.
